What’s In The New Starbucks Pink Drink?

The internet is all abuzz about the new pink drink from Starbucks. From the images circulating online, the drink looks somewhat like a strawberry milkshake, which is so much yum in its own right. But when did Starbucks roll out milkshakes, you ask?

They didn’t, it turns out.

The pink drink is actually not even on the Starbucks menu. It’s a drink you need to specifically ask for, and it turns out it’s not a milkshake either!

So what is this secret new drink? It’s the Starbucks Strawberry Acai Refresher made with coconut milk instead of water. The coconut milk adds a shake-like creaminess to the standard fruity Refresher mixture. If you aren’t familiar with Starbucks Refreshers, they are iced beverages that Starbucks introduced several years ago containing fruit juices and Green Coffee Extract, which provides some light caffeination.

Coconut milk, which comes from the white flesh of brown coconuts, is high in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous, so it’s a healthy and delicious alternative to plain old water. You could substitute low-fat for full-fat coconut milk to enjoy a similar dose of deliciousness with less fat.

Refreshers are also sold in canned form, which makes me think you could even make this delicious concoction at home for yourself!
